Roberts Wesleyan College Celebrates Grand Opening of the Crothers Science and Nursing Center

Friday, September 25, 2015

Nearly 200 community members gathered at Roberts Wesleyan College to celebrate the grand opening of the new and highly anticipated Crothers Science & Nursing Center on September 25. The 44,000-square-foot, two-story facility houses first-rate educational facilities for science and nursing education at Roberts Wesleyan. SWBR is so pleased to be a part of this new facility and to have had the opportunity to share in the celebration!

The new building features state-of-the-art classrooms, advanced simulation laboratories and an experimental greenhouse. Its simulators have realistic features — such as blinking eyes, pulses, and breathing, heart and lung sounds — that respond to nursing students’ practices. It is complete with advanced instrumentation and scientific equipment, modern teaching laboratories, several specialized labs, and dedicated research space in biology, chemistry and forensic science that brings together students, faculty and staff, both in and outside the classroom.
